We should just sign Kolo back.
Could grujic be our Dele Alli? I hate preseason but got damn that was one hell of a 1st performance.
If he can light it up in actual league play and win the young player of the year award then I don't see why not. They are of a similar build, both taller than most in that position. Life is nothing without dreams, after all.
Matip may have gotten hurt today.
Possible ankle issue.
Liverpool have made a move for Georginio Wijnaldum, the Newcastle United midfielder, and are hoping a fee can be agreed this week.
Big guns on Twitter reporting this.
But yet we won't pay 20 for Hector :(
And Ragnar Klavan from Augsburg at CB for £4 mil
not sure how you spend 20 mil on him and keep Henderson
So this Ben Woodburn kid is supposedly the real deal.
Yeah he has been really impressive so far this preseason. Can't believe he is only 16.
Woodburns composure on the finish was impressive. His goal from the last game was a tap in though.
New #3 - Sakho
Hopefully Enrique's AIDS are all off it.
Hope the Gary Medel rumors are true.
Would absolutely take.
That's a huge upgrade over Lucas but he's about to turn 29. Doesn't feel like a very FSG move.
He would slot well into the DM roll and also can play CB. Would be a great signing although he's a fucking weirdo. Couldn't see him costing a huge amount either.
I think TIA said around 12 mil but I don't know if that's them just guessing or what.
If Inter is making him available then I can see 12. If we called them then it's probably higher.
Gonna be straight cash or money and player for Gini?
Rafa can have Lucas back
I saw that mentioned which is why I asked lol. I'd be ok taking him but I hope they don't take under 20 so Lucas can be included
I'd be ok with Lucas + cash for him.
But not 20. Not with all the CAMs we have.
we'll include Lucas
Fine, 25 million
I think we would play him deeper
I actually don't like Medel. Too slow
Also I will cry when Lucas leaves watson
Lucas will never leave watson
You'll love him but be ready for at least one reckless challenge/yellow card a game.
So he is just like our other DMs, Lucas and Can? Sweet!
You'll absolutely love him though. He doesn't take shit from anybody and his work rate is crazy.
He's not a 27 million upgrade over Jordan Henderson. Everything I've read about him is that just like Hendo, he can play deeper, but not in a 2 man midfield.
He's an attacking midfielder. If you were to play him in the middle it'd be an awful move
Right. He'd be playing in the midfield 3 behind the striker. I would think this would be the end of Lallana and he'd slot in behind Coutinho, Firmino, and Mane in the pecking order.
Really think he could fit in well. He could play all the attacking mid spots as well
Also clearly I think this means Markovic is gone.
Don't see how he gets into the starting 11 if you think he has to play the 10. Mane, Coutinho, and Firmino are all gonna be in the team and you have to think Sturridge or Origi will too.
I don't think he does but people will get injured this year.
Well then that would be fucking stupid to spend 25m on a backup when we could spend that on a deeper midfielder and a LB.
Still think Klopp thinks he can play deeper.
I don't know, this seems like option B after Zielinski fell through and Zielinski didn't play in a 2 man midfield either. He fits in the starting 11 if we are going to play a 4-3-3 or a Diamond midfield but that drops other players out of the team.
Apparently Newcaslte told LFC they want £27 and all cash
You know there's zero chance Coutinho plays the whole season
Watch your mouth
Telegraph reporting Rafa wants Lucas as part of a deal for Wijnaldum
With our lack of cover for Flannigan (or FB in general) I didn't figure we'd let that one happen. Still don't like the deal though especially if it's 27 + Lucas. Has to be 20 + Lucas.
Yea I'm not really sure. Last week the price was 25. This morning someone said 27 all cash, now telegraph saying Lucas and money.
Huh? We have Clyne. And Lucas doesn't play RB.
Sorry. Should have allaborated. Flannigan can cover both flanks as a backup and if we aren't buying another LB then we'd need him way more than we'd need Lucas. Therefore Lucas is to me more expendable and would be my preferred choice to go in this deal. Plus sending Flannigan would be harder for local supporters (scouse) than an older Brazilian player.
